is the militias in libya with all the guns and weapons were equipped while the united states led from behind to do nothing. something one of the lessons is when there is this kind of thing, we should be in there, helping our friends in this case establish law and order. the public reaction in libya, the killing of the ambassador is frankly very sympathetic to the united states. and i think we should be taking advantage of that. lou: we didn't like the results of the election in egypt, but they also had an election, they also had change direction, again from a direction that the united states is not particularly enamored with. nonetheless, they had changed the character of their government in the direction of the nation. what should we do there as well? >> well, i think that we should be a lot clearer about what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. it was unacceptable for the president of egypt come to the united states into the case of sitting in jail because of the 1993 world world trade center bombing. it is certainly unacceptable for president mohammed morsi of egypt basically equivocate a
. there's no way you can shut down outrageous speech in the country of the united states, it's going to happen, but if the responsibility of responsible officials in egypt and other countries throughout the world to take actions to protect embassies and they are the ones who are responsible, and the extremists sure -- stirring up the crowds are responsible. talking about the video really is to distract from the real problem. gerri: you have a lot of experience in these proceedings as deputy secretary of defense under george w. bush. people staid it's bush's fault the arab world is in unrest today. do you agree? how do you respond? >> i don't at all. look, these extremists were breeding in the arab world for years under horrible dictators. 9/11 happened with basically before george w. bush even appeared, and i believe in fact that the dictatorships of the arab world gave credit the to the extremists who attacks the governments for denying freedom to their people. sooner or later, those governments collapse both because of age and also, frankly, because ashes want freedom as well, and
is that he's running for president of the united states. he's not running for president of one half of the united states or president of the republican party. and as barack obama said so brilliantly in his speech at the convention, you know, we're a community and we need to all work together to a common goal. and you know, to divide the country and say this half is this half is just wrong. second, his facts are wrong. that 47%, those people are paying taxes. many of them are paying a higher tax rate than mitt romney is because they're paying their payroll taxes at 14%. and third, all politicians should understand, when you're running for president or any other office, you can't talk out of both sides of your mouth. you can't go to a fund-raiser and say one thing and then go on tv and say another thing. you need to speak consistently about what you're for. and it just goes to show the choice we have in this election is so stark, and mitt romney has laid it out so clearly that i think democrats, rightfully this morning, and people in the country, rightfully this morning, see what they

in issued this statement -- "it's shocking that a candidate for president of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half of the american people view themselves as victims entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. it's hard to serve as president for all americans when you've disdainfully written off half the nation." in a late-night news conference, romney responded. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way, but it's a message which i'm going to carry and continue to carry, which is, look, the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes because, frankly, my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to them. and therefore, i'm not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who are in the middle. >> let me britain in anne kornblut for "the washington post" and a politics reporter for roll

the president has taken office, for every one dollar added to the economy, the united states has added more than 3 dollars in debt. while there's been a 12% increase in economic output, there's been a 50% increase in the national debt. those are the numbers. here's something not to get lost today. one of the biggest names in america business says the economy is getting worse. we're going to have more on why fedex is lowering its outlook. dagen: you wonder why oil is selling off. one of the biggest names in the bond market, he is here in studio. bob auwaerter coming on. bank of america, merrill lynch just said gold going to end up going to $2400 an ounce. we know how those often work out. look at oil at $96 a barrel.

been made of their failure to invest and promote the pepsi brand for soda within the united states. how relevant now is the home market for investors when, for example, coke is suggesting they will invest $30 billion over the next two or three years with the bot lers to double consumption around the world? >> it's a great question. so there's been a terrific change of heart at pepsi. this year about $600 million of advertising spending behind the businesses, the bulk of that is going to happen in north america. you probably just saw they sign add deal with the nfl. clearly they feel the pressure and want to start growing some of their businesses here at home again. >> and how does that compare to mao tau kent and the mass everybody bottlers worldwide. >> remember, coke bought their bottle in the u.s. so they have a lot more skin in the game. the good die naming here on the beverage side is guys are kind of getting along and playing nicely for the first time in a while. i think they want to make more money. they're cognizant of the economic. they're making the pack sizes smaller and lift
the united states. this border crossing at eagle pass, texas is on alert and residents of the sleepy border city have been warned to call police if they see strangers. mexican prosecutors say the escapees, including many members of violent drug cartels, dug a tunnel through the prison's workshop. while a great escape through a tunnel may remind you of the "shawshank redemption," in this case it wasn't just one escapee. all 129 squeezed one by one through an opening a few feet wide. they used ropes and electric cables to full them suches to the guard tower where they tied up the guard. next they cut the chain link fence that stood between them and freedom and ran for it. authorities think the tunnel had been around a few months and doubt the inmates dug it without anyone knowing. in fact, police have detained the prison director and a dozen guards suspecting this escape was an "inside job." tonight, mexican special forces working to put the escapees back there. ryan owen, abc news, dallas. >>> now we have late news to report from chicago. the teachers who have been on strike for more than a
the office of president of the united states would so dismiss all of the people he is sworn to serve if he should be fortunate, which certainly i believe he won't, to succeed in this quest. it is really disheartening to hear him say that. >> congressman, you worked alongside dr. edward zeigler who, of course, developed the highly effective head start program. i had the great privilege of interviewing dr. zeigler. that has been so crucial in helping children in challenging family circumstances, but given mr. romney's contempt for half the population, i guess it's no surprise that his running mate, paul ryan, his running mate's budget would slash head start to pieces. >> it would slash head start. it slashes college education and tuition. it slashes medicaid as well, which also hurts the very seniors also that they claim they're going to protect. this cynical nature of this has had even the bishops joining with the nuns and saying that this is an immoral budget that he has put forward because of how it decimates the poorest amongst us. i mean, dr. zeigler would be amazed by all of this, and
grow increasingly dangerous and hostile to the united states. bill: words from secretary gates were even stronger. chuck nash, retired u.s. navy captain, fox news military analyst. captain, good morning to you and welcome back here. >> good morning. bill: what gates calls the cuts at the end of the december, mindless cuts set to take effect. what do you make of that? >> essentially what we have ngress before it adjourned set up a doomsday scenario only they told everybody. if we don't come to agreement on the cuts what will happen we'll blow the whole thing up, we'll blow up the world. it is akin to the cleavon little character in "blazing saddles", saying if you don't back off, he gets it. guess what? the guns to the head. they will let this thing counts down, go to zero and blow up. and so, it is one of those things you want it real bad and you will get it real bad. bill: what gates says after the election in november, i'm using his words now, whatever adults remain in the two political parties will make compromises necessary to put the country back in order. he is not messing aro
